Tiptop Audio is still working on a poly modular system.  I saw their poly
VCO at the NAMM before last and it was mind blowing.  He plans on a
complete system.  I think it will finally bridge the gab between modulars
and stand alone poly synths.  People reluctant to get into modulars because
that money can go towards a poly synth instead will now be able to get a
poly synth that just happens to be a full on modular as well.

Here's my video of the PVCO at NAMM:
